Maricopa is close to beginning construction on a new police administration and emergency communication center which will rise directly across from the Pinal County Complex that opened last year at Garvey and Wilson avenues. According to City Manager Rick Horst, construction on the $25.4 million project will begin in late January or early February.
The new facility will cover about 25,000 square feet on a single floor. Horst said the original concept was for a two-story facility, but the single floor design ended up being more cost effective and having all staff working on the same floor will allow for better communication and greater work efficiencies.
